Help us honor our military veterans this Veteran's Day and Give to the Max Day by supporting their next mission: A University of Minnesota Duluth Degree!
Support for our nation’s heroes is needed more than ever, as military service men and women transition into college. The UMD Commander David R. Wheat HEROS Fund provides academic scholarships and fellowships for University of Minnesota Duluth students who are military veterans, active service members, National Guard, or Reservists. HEROS stands for Higher Education Return Opportunities Scholarship.
A generous donor will MATCH up to $1,111.17 thus doubling gifts made by midnight Thursday, November 16 2017!
Our goal for 2017 is $2,500.00
The fund is named in honor of Commander David R. Wheat who spent the better part of the Vietnam War in captivity as a POW. Commander Wheat is also a donor to this fund. Commander Wheat's example of commitment serves as a clarion call to all of us to support our veterans.
